AOI (Kerala State Branch) aims to encourage and advance the study and practice of the art and science of ENT & Head and Neck diseases. Moreover it deals with increasing concern and consciousness of common people in ENT related health problems and its prevention and management.
It is history that the ENT Surgeons of Kerala were in two separate organizations, namely AOI Kerala Branch and AOI Malabar branch. There was widespread feeling among the ENT Surgeons in Kerala to come under a common unified Branch. The inaugural conference of the state-wide association was held in 2002 at Kozhikode under the guidance of Founder President, Prof. K. Ashok Kumar. Here the dream came true and the two bodies merged together to form The Association of Otolaryngologists of India, Kerala State Branch. This single body now represents the community of ENT Surgeons within the physical borders of Kerala State.
